Mbappe, Neymar, Messi lift PSG in 5 goals thriller

Kylian Mbappe scored twice and provided three assists as Paris St-Germain kept their 12-point lead at the top of Ligue 1 with victory over lowly Lorient.

Neymar stroked in the opener and PSG’s fifth, both from Mbappe through-balls.

Mbappe coolly drilled home in the first half and took his tally to 17 for the season with a rasping finish, before laying off for Lionel Messi’s goal.

Terem Moffi pulled a goal back in the second half, but the loss means Lorient stay a point above the drop zone.

France striker Mbappe could have had a hat-trick in a virtuoso display, but struck the foot of the post late on.

Earlier on Sunday, second-placed Marseille won 4-2 at Saint-Etienne, while former champions Monaco, who are sixth, edged a 2-1 victory at Metz.
